It's summer, the cicadas are singing, and the Lafayette family has returned to their late patriarch's  Arkansas home to deal with The Remains of his estate. Toni (Paulson), the eldest daughter, hopes they'll  spend the weekend remembering and reconnecting over their beloved father. Bo (Stoll), her brother, wants to recoup some of the funds he spent caring for Dad at the end of his life. But things take a turn  when their estranged brother, Franz (Esper), appears late one night, and mysterious objects are  discovered among the clutter. Suddenly, long-hidden secrets and buried resentments can't be contained,  and the family is forced to face the ghosts of their past.
